I've discovered that the mysterious scratches that have been appearing on my body also happen to many people around the world.

Certain strange phenomena occur frequently and affect individuals across the globe, but are rarely discussed. Thanks to the internet, however, people who observe unusual occurrences—in this case waking up with three scratches somewhere on their bodies—are now starting to talk to each other. Those suffering from nocturnal scratches and abrasions with no tangible cause are turning to the web to seek answers. There are many of us out there, and some of us are starting to realize that we may be suffering from the same phenomenon.

When I say it like that, it sounds crazy, right? Sure it does. It sounds crazy to me too, and I'm the one writing about the phenomenon of unexplainable scratches appearing on human flesh. When people start to wake up with scratches that defy logical explanation, the following questions come to mind:

  • What does this mean?
  • Why is this happening?
  • Who else is it happening to?
  • Am I crazy, or is this real?
  • What can I do to stop this?

These scratches defy explanation and leave victims wondering "why me?"

What Do Unexplained Scratches Mean?

Over the course of my research and communication with other afflicted individuals, I've collected the following information regarding the phenomenon of waking up to unexplained scratches on the body:

  • These scratches usually come in threes. They can be parallel, crossed, or random, but most often appear in sets of three.
  • The most common areas on which the scratches appear are the back, arms, legs, and face.
  • In addition to the mysterious scratches, many individuals also experience inexplicable bite marks and bruising.
  • These strange injuries seem to appear at times in our lives when temptation is near or when we're facing a big decision.
  • This phenomenon doesn't restrict itself to one country. It has afflicted many individuals and families around the world.

Thousands of victims, myself included, have turned to the internet to search for answers and insight about the three unexplainable scratches that have appeared on our bodies.

Personal Stories About Mysterious, Random, and Unexplained Scratches

The following are testimonials from real victims of the phenomenon, most of whom discovered the injuries in sets of three upon waking from sleep. These are real comments left by readers who have experienced scratches and other mysterious events.

Personal Powers: Gift or Curse?

"I found this site via a search on paranormal scratches. I'm the victim of this phenomenon. This has been happening to me for the last 6 years. At first I thought it was just something odd or that maybe one of my cats scratched me and I didn't remember. I actually watched them form one night and had witnesses to the event. They were raised like welts and turned bloody. After about 3 days they completely disappeared. I've had them in places I can't reach which rules out self-infliction. I've had them on my face, neck, arms, legs, and back. Over the years I've almost gotten used to them.

I was told that it might be a ghost in my house, but when I moved it kept happening. Also other people that have been close to me have been affected as well. I know this is bizarre and doesn't fit the norm, so I'm here in search of answers. I've been advised by someone who tried to help me that it may in fact be my own psychic doing. Let me explain. We all have a personal spiritual energy and there's a lot about the human mind we are only starting to understand. It's been suggested that I have certain powers or gifts that are making this happen. This power comes at a price, though. It's painful and has affected others I know.

The bloody scratch marks eventually heal and disappear but nonetheless it's scary. I'm not saying that I'm some kind of warlock or anything like that. The reality is I don't know what's going on or how to deal with this. I could use some help. So I've chose the grassroots method and decided to find others like me. The person I'm currently talking to has been very helpful, but she is only one source of information. I would like to hear from others. Thanks."

Looking for Answers

"I wake up sometimes and I have scratches on my upper body, on the front and back of my right shoulder blade, and on my stomach on the right side. I don't inflict them on myself and I also do not have any animals. What do you think they are coming from?"

An Ongoing Battle With a Relentless Foe

"On way too many occasions I have woken up with bad bruises on my body. I know that at work I often bump my arms and legs into things, but these bruises are on my torso. Unless someone pinched me or hit me, I can not figure out where I got them. On several occasions my husband has noticed bruising on my back and scratching on my back as if someone had just scratched me. They are not bleeding, but they are fresh. I have had dealings in the past with paranormal experiences where I have been pushed down a flight of stairs, or punched in the back. I call to the power of the Lord, Jesus Christ to rid me of these attacks. It usually works. But, the Devil just does not like to let go."

Demonic Damage

"The scratches, if not self-inflicted, are definitely demonic. There have been thousands of these afflictions in the past and 90% have demonic origin.

There is Biblical evidence of this, and it can be overcome. But don't go to a Catholic priest for prayer; they will just tie you up in religious jargon. Call a reputable evangelist."

A Sobering Fright

"I am having these issues right now.

Yesterday I awoke with a large bruise on my forearm in the shape of a toothless human bite. The surrounding area is swollen, and I had 2 other people besides myself look for bug/spider bites(NONE)!

Today I have three scratches on the other forearm that became welt-like and burn. They are wider than cat scratches. Two of the scratches run straight up and down the forearm and the third sort of curves towards the other two. They are all about two to two-and-a-half inches long. I don't smoke dope (speed, meth, whatever you want to call it) or crack, no alcohol, no over-the-counter pills."

Unhallowed Ground

"I was awoken around 2:24am when my three-year-old son came running into my room screaming, "Get it away from me, get it away from me!" I opened my eyes as he climbed in bed between me and my wife. It was still dark in the room. I looked towards the foot of the bed. With GOD as my witness, clear as day, I saw a green face. I saw his eyes, nose, and mouth. His head was at the foot of the bed as if he was resting his chin on the bed. I screamed as loud as I could and reached for the light. By this time I was standing on my pillow against the headboard... The face disappeared when I turned the light on. I turned every light on in my home and searched every closet, under every bed, every square inch. I found nothing!

We live in a township called Huron believed to have been built on Indian burial grounds. I've been in the garage working underneath the car and have heard someone come in the door and close it and nobody was there at all. We have heard loud banging from the outside which shakes the house: not one or two bangs but six or seven in a row. Once I called the police and they searched the outer grounds. At the time there was four inches of snow on the ground and no one found a single footprint where the banging came from.

I have since moved out of that house and my father continues to live there. He had three scratches on him last week. He also said he saw the green face in his room. I built a home on three acres on property right next door. Nothing has happened in my new home as we had it blessed. But my father says he hears a man talking almost every night. He has woken to the sound of water running and has had to shut it off.

When he got sick and had to go to the hospital for surgery he was gone for seven days. I let his dogs out every day and fed them and spent time with them. THEY BOTH DIED for no reason the night before my dad was released from the hospital. The vet has no clue what they died from. They were both only four years old. I believe a demonic evil within the home murdered my dad's dogs.

Every thing I have said is true and not a stunt. On the brighter side of things, my mom, who divorced my father 30 years ago lives in Arizona. She feeds these wild birds every day in her back yard by a stucco wall. The other day she noticed a face on the wall that looks to me like Jesus."

Do Dreams Spill Over?

"I have had unexplained scratches, strange bruises, and possible burn marks. I have also had very fine, laser-straight parallel scratches under my right eye which disappeared within hours. I live in a clean house with no pets and shower every day. I'm not religious. All the marks clear up within a few days and do not hurt. I do dream about large demonic looking creatures (tall with gladiator-like human bodies and vile dog-like heads), but in the dreams I'm not afraid and find myself to be stronger and quicker and fend them off very easily. According to my partner I'm a heavy sleeper and a right git to wake up so I don't think the marks are self-inflicted. Some are right in the middle of my back where I couldn't reach. Maybe they're psychosomatic."

A Startling Development

"I get these scratches when I'm awake..."

Risky Rituals

"My brother Guy, my best friend Mindy, and me (Chrissy) were in my room the other day. We sat in a circle in the dark and held hands. Each of us said the words, 'On the first day of school I fell off my bike and got a scratch,' and so on seven times. We turned the lights on and checked our backs. Mindy had SEVEN red scratches lined up on her back.

There was one scratch on my neck, two scratches on my right arm, and four on my left arm. My brother only had small ones. We took pictures of Mindy's. Mindy and I have scratches all over our bodies. One of Mindy's scratches left a scab. The one on my neck is very deep, deep enough to leave a rash.

We don't have a very good relationship with Jesus Christ, so I don't know what to do...but I wear a cross. It helps me when I'm scared for some reason. I have a really bad feeling about this. Help. I have had weird experiences with these type of things before, such as screaming on my camera when I was making a video and nobody was at my house but me. And I've seen weird things in Mindy's room but i won't get into details because nobody believes me. I don't know what to do and I'm scared to be alone in my room."

How Can We Explain These Mysterious Scratches on Our Bodies?

For several years, my family and I experienced sets of three scratches appearing mysteriously on our bodies without an obvious cause or explanation. In retrospect, we have come to believe that we were disregarding God and all He stood for during this portion of our lives. We were living for ourselves, using drugs, and embracing the "rock star" lifestyle.

While the scratches were weird enough on their own, what drove our suspicion to the next level was the fact that they appeared in patterns. Sometimes there were three parallel, cat-like scratch marks, just deep enough to see red, but not deep enough to draw blood. Sometimes there was one horizontal line with two vertical lines crossing it near the center. They would always burn at first, then disappear entirely a short time later—only to appear somewhere else on our bodies before long.

For us, this era felt drowned in confusion and chaos, so much so that we began to perceive the very atmosphere around us as foggy or hazy. As the scratches began to appear more and more frequently, things suddenly became clear: These mysterious scratches had a meaning—a purpose. We came to believe that they were intentionally inflicted to cause chaos and confusion in our lives, and ultimately destroy us. In a nutshell, we realized that demons were placing these marks on our bodies.

We had to look outside the realm of logical explanation to get to the bottom of our nightmarish scratches.

Our Theory: Scratches Caused by Demons

I know, I know, it sounds crazy—and I agree—but I believe some amazing and disturbing things may be occurring behind the scenes of humanity's existence. My family and I have been told that we are crazy, but we are resolute in the validity of our shared experience. We were affected physically by a phenomenon and have decided to share our story with others suffering from the same thing. Little did we know, it was happening to millions around the world!

What We Did Next

According to my research, the three parallel scratches symbolize destruction or the desire to "destroy." But what is meant to be destroyed? We, the marked humans, are the intended targets. The demonic forces administering the scratches prey on our corruption. God tells us that "the devils go to and fro, seeking whom they may devour." So for us, the only way we could stop this phenomenon from continuing was by surrendering to Jesus Christ. How do we know this to be true? We called to Him, and even though we disregarded His ways, He answered.

How We Stopped the Scratches From Recurring

After several months of making the right decisions in life and becoming more aware and obedient to God's moral laws, we were set free! We are living proof that Jesus Christ is our guide and our Savior!

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.

— 1 Peter 5:8

      I had to look this up because I am now worried about the three parallel scars I find on my skin when I wake up. Initially I thought it was wall gecko walking on my skin but the lines are not endless . Used to find them on my stomach, my arms and I currently have two sets of three lines on my back, left and right. The night this one happened I remember feeling sleep paralysis. I suffer from those too but I thought it was something about being to conscious when asleep, I’m not a heavy sleeper . But I felt a weight on top of me pressing me against the bed for a few minutes . My relationship with Christ isn’t solid but I go to church and I pray. I’ve had this scars longer than four years now and I am getting scared to sleep every night now . Sleep paralysis, three scratch scars and now feeling pressed against the bed... I’m super worried .

      Although I’ve always had a very strong spiritual connection, I used to dream of things that eventually happened , the first time I suffered sleep paralysis, I felt my self float and when I was able to move , I had turned to the other side of the bed where my feet ought to be was where my head was and I swear I never slept that way.

      I’m scared to telll my mum cause she will freak out and I don’t need the drama now. What do I do to stop these from happening ??? I’m scared .

      I never would've thought that the three scratches I wake up with, mainly below my neck in the center of back, just like so may have described....,were not self inflicted until I told my daughter and my husband one time to check. I even have my husband take a picture of it. And they will despair two or three days later. And at first, we all came to think, oh it's just something like a zipper of a dress, etc, that might had caused it. But then happened again and again, this time my daughter look on line and found these subject that actually there are a lot people going through this weird experience and more. It became to be very scary. What I can say about my experience, I do believe in God and I am very close to God, I read the Bible very often, pray every day and night.....but whatever it could be it's very jealous of the Love I have for my God. BUT I know now they might be demons or something like that, I have asked God NEVER let me go. He is holding me tight, I belong to my Lord Jesus Christ! AMEN

      Long parallel scratches 

      12 days ago

      As I'm writing this I have the three parallel scratches on my left thigh. I first got one scratch while I was home at my mom's place and I wanted to tell her but something destructed me and never got a chance to tell her. When I got back to my place I just woke up with two more scratches on the very same place. I don't know either what it is but I'm pretty sure it might be a sign of Alerting us from the enemy so we should give our all to Christ. Why am I saying this is because I once had a dream: [sleeping in a very dark place and saw a dark person saying that he/she has been looking for me and now he got me, I had to wake up in a dream scared as I was and ran to the next room, so as I was approaching the room I met my pastor and he said that he found me a Word helper at church and I should read 1 Peter 2], after the dream I woke up and prayed. For some reasons that verse woke me up, as I speak right now I'm in the process of registering a Bible school so it can help uplifting me in the word of God and work for God because he has always been there for me all my life.

      To all those people with the visions of demons, sleep paralysis and the scratch marks, please I beg you, say this prayer now.

      "Dear Lord Jesus, I love you and accept you as my God and Saviour. Thank you for dying for me on the cross at Calvary. By your blood, I am SAVED. Thank you for loving me so much that you would give your life for me, suffer so terribly and be resurrected to prove you are stronger than anything thing else out there. No force is stronger than YOU!"" Amen.

      Keep saying this prayer and see John 3:16 and Romans 4:14 and related verses in you New King James version bible. They are free at your local church.

      A few years back, I had a near death accident, after leaving the hospital had to stay at mom's house for a couple of weeks, she bought this house after my two younger brothers left, so the house we grew up at was just to big for her, in this new house, whenever I was there, always felt this heaviness in the air, like being watch, and most nights I would experienced what some call "sleep paralysis", so it got to a point that I was very angry at the fact that I could not move at all, one night, I woke and opened my eyes and saw a silhouette of a man just at the feet of my bed, tried to move, but couldn't, I was very scared at first, this went on for almost three weeks, and I was at a point I was not afraid anymore, I was angry at this "man" that came and tried to terrorize me at night, and I was most of all worried for my mom, so I kindda prepared my self mentally, I knew I could be able to move if I just focus on my body and not the silhouette, so one night, I felt this heaviness in the air, and knew that this "man" was going to come and pay me a visit, I fell asleep like any other night. Not sure what time it was, but I assume it was around 3:00 and 3:30, I woke up very agitated, and I saw "him" there at the feet of my bed, not sure how, but I was able to muster enough strength and put both my feet on the floor and set on the bed, I saw this shadow took a step back, the body language was of someone surprised, not sure how to explain it, I stood up and thru him a punch with my right arm, I knew I was not going to hit him, he was about 5 feet away, but I was trying to show him that I was not at his mercy anymore, this shadow turned around and saw him ran out the door and down the corridor, I have never seen this silhouette or shadow ever since, but ever since I have these recurring scratches on my lower legs, they appear in rows of two or three scratches, always on the front part of my legs and just under the knees, I think is the shadow's way of telling me he is still around, but to tell you the truth, I'm not afraid of "him", I think he is more afraid of me, that's why he doesn't show himself to me anymore, he know I will kick his ass...

      So glad to have found this page as I have NEVER experienced anything like this. I went to bed in leggings a t-shirt and a heavy hoodie. When I woke up and took off my shirt, it was stuck to my back,...from blood. When I looked in the mirror I had three large scratches on my back. One of which was so deep it bled and left a scar. Nothing has happened since, but everytime I look at the pictures I took it makes me feel scared. Any insight into this?

      The bible is quite specific when it says 'The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the works of the devil.' On this earth as believers in Him, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we are now His Hands, His feet, His body. He lives and operates through us by His Spirit and if the Body of Christ realized that they had the same power in them that raised Christ from the dead, they would not be so fearful when the enemy comes knocking. 'For God has NOT given us a spirit of Fear, but of Love, Peace and a Sound Mind. People realise that it is not us who should be fearful but the enemy who quakes in fear at the Name that is ABOVE EVERY NAME, the name of Jesus! Please claim and lay hold of what is rightfully yours as a child of the kingdom, an heir and joint heir of Christs, for ALREADY we in the spiritual sense are seated with Him in Heavenly places. When the Enemy dares to mark you or bring fear to your door again SPEAK and COMMAND him in the Name of Jesus to be gone and desist forthwith! Be blessed brothers and sisters in Christ our Lord!

      Whilst waiting for my daughter in a car park last night outside her college, i suddenly and out of nowhere felt this really sharp sore feeling on my lower arm. It startled me snd immediately i tried to reason out what it might have been. Nothing was near me, no sharp objects or abrasive surfaces, and its winter here in the Uk and it was certainly no biting insect. The car was dark and i thought no more of it till i got home and discovered i had received a deep skin cut on my lower arm which was red and had removed skin. I again wondered and reasoned what could have caused this. Now i must say at this point that I'm a born again Christian and while i look for natural causes to things i don't dismiss supernatural reasons either. I know theres a realm around us that is as real as our own physical realm and that as the Bible says we can't fight with flesh and blood. It may be coincidental but im getting ready to train fir the deliverance ministry and it strikes me that the more we stand to take back ground off the enemy, you may draw his attention a little more closely. Anyhow i took matters into my own hands and and prayed the Blood of Jesus over my body and mind, and prayed Gods protection over me and my family

      Didn't quite get the answers I was anticipating, but I am relieved to finally see that other people have this happen to them too. It looks like you are composing your article with many anecdotes which is interesting, but confused me..

      About the person - i think it was arizona - whose kid saw a green. I had someone tell me a similar story about a "grey" who appeared at the foot of his bed and then suddenly ran off when he tried to move to investigate it. It was watching the man and his wife while they were sleeping.

      but you have inspired me to do more research. thank you

      You don’t believe? Yet you have proof that there is a demonic realm. They have marked you as theirs. Seek Elohim Yahweh and you will find Him. What else you got to do? Stay strong, don’t give up. Don’t give into the enemies lie, you will regret it for eternity. If demons exist, then what makes you think that God isn’t? He’s Good!

      I fogot to mention that these cuts or scratches are more like welts, they have a swollen ridge but they don't hurt. When I noticed them, they resembled cuts more than scratches, as if someone took a knife and just struck me enough to create these deep cuts that bled as the scab was quite thick and high. Scary stuff strange happenings. The cuts are not rough like a scratch would be, they are straight and deep? To bad we can't post pictures as I took one of mine, and showed them to a friend, they couldn't believe it and said that is really weird because the location is to difficult for me to have made them. Weird weird weird

      A year ago I lost my spouse, the love of my life and my world. Since that time, I have wished to die. Everyday I wish I was dead.

      Well, about 6 weeks ago, over a 3 week period, I saw this black floating ghost shape flash in front of me, and to my side. When I took a second look, it disappeared completely. I thought ok, that was weird.

      Then 3 weeks ago, I was sitting in my car, reading an article on my phone. I had my two front windows down halfway, when all of a sudden, a voice came out of no where and with a low to mid tone said, "There he is". This was on my drivers side window and it started me enough that I got out of my car only to find no one there or around? Talk about weird things going on.

      Then 3 days ago, I jumped in the shower, and holy crap, there were 3 cut like marks on my left shoulder blade where I could not have made them, two straight up and down, the third, on what looks like a 45 degree angle, starting from the bottom of the one, facing the top of the other, but neither end touching the vertical ones. This really startled me. These 3 cuts or scratches, were covered in blood scabs, but I have no idea how it happened, they just appeared as I had a should the day before and they were not there? Too many weird things happening and no explanation as to why? I don't believe in God, or the after life because so many friends and family have passed away and I'm still here. The scratches are two-and-a-half inches long accept for the middle one, which is about half an inch.

      I am a very spiritual person and I believe I’m pretty spiritually intune with the Holy Spirit, but I have woke up a few times with random scratches on my arm or shoulder. Most recently my daughter (14) has been waking with the scratches in sets of 3 and I have woke with bruising that seemed to be from something hard the way they looked and they felt sore. At first I thought it was because I kept bumping my legs on the bed when moving furniture or rearranging and it could still very well be from that but the other morning I woke with 3 small bruises almost in the form

      Of a triangle and I thought that was weird .... from the start I thought it may be a demonic attack because where we reside currently is definitely not the most holy.

      I mean we live in DV housing (domestic violence) and staff are very nice here and they help a lot but other residents now that’s a different story and lately I’ve been feeling unwanted company lingering . I always remind myself that we aren’t fighting against flesh and blood but against the powers and principalities of darkness! And honest to God I can feel lately when it’s a spirit watching me and not the person. I pray over my children everyday and I started back worshipping in the morning and night before bed. I’ll also play sermons or Worhsip while we sleep to guard our gates. Now I know if your not a God fearing person or love Jesus or even know Jesus you probably are like this lady is insane, but I kid you not this world is a spiritual environment before it’s a a worldly one and spiritual warfare is real and happening while we live our everyday lives. Like the writer said we are to be aware and obedient to the LORD if we really want to live in victory over the enemy!

      I’ll be fighting back through Worhsip I hope you come to the realization on how dk fight and/but also let God so His Job Ana help protect not only yourself but your loved ones!

      Love you all, thanks so much for sharing and God bless!

      Yesterday when I woke up, I had 7 scratches just above my left breast, I was confused and I didn't feel any pain nor was it bleeding. It looks just as if I scratched myself but I don't scratch in my sleep and there was nothing sharp on my bed, is there a reasonal explanation?

      People. ..please look for a more logical reason. Mites, mold can cause fungal infection similar to ringworm. The skin can become very odd. Im dealing with it now. And yes, dermatologists are not very knowledgeable on this. Not that they'll admit it keep praying though .

I also occasionally get bruising on my right side that look like bite marks but I live alone. Any legit help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Prayn 4 Portal Closing 

      5 months ago

      I have had strange and benevolent occurrences for years. The latest is scratch marks on my finger. I woke up with them this morning. I had recently learned that CERN is opening portals to the demonic dimension and that's what's CAUSING the dimensional shift. They've been lying making us think this was a natural phenomenon when all the time we were being prepared to accept it and continuing in sin. I learned that witches, warlocks, and other cult members are praying constantly to open them and have been for years. It's more of them praying that the people Jesus are praying to close them. I was also told that Jesus is calling on His remnant to pray constantly to close them. I began praying for them to be closed and also spreaded the message for the believers to pray against the opening of them. I had begun fasting and watching my diet. I was about addicted to junk food until I got my blood test results which gave me the strength to change my eating habits. Then yesterday I relapsed on jfood. I had recently saw a vid where certain food additives in a brand of ice cream would not melt no matter how long it was left out. 2weeks after I cleaned my diet, I would tap my stomach and it sounded solid. Now this morning it sounds hollow and gasfully upset. I'm thinking similar additives are in junkfood and it gave demons access to me. I wrote a prayer for believers. These portals are said to be opening in major cities. I think possibly around the world. Here is a prayer to share:

      I pray to the Heavenly Father

      I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over me

      I plead the blood of Jesus over my city

      I plead the blood of Jesus over my state

      I plead the blood of Jesus over your country that it covers all your remnant, all redeemable, and everyone who'll come to the foot of the cross;

      I pray for portal closing

      To end dimension shifting

      I pray to send those demons back

      To where they belong

      I pray against the wicked prayers

      Who pray to open up these portals

      And let those demons in

      In the name of Jesus Christ I pray

      Amen. Amen.

I’m terrified but it’s only happened once, my cats nor dogs can scratch that huge and the dogs don’t come in my room, and the cats stay outside. I went to school and my stomach was burning I lifted up my shirt a little and saw 3 Scratches on my stomach.I told my mom but she had no clue.Could it be someone that’s been sneaking in my room at night or,? Could it had been an ghost? I want answers.

      This is the 2nd time in 2 weeks I have woken up with unusual scratches on the back of my right leg. The other night I was awoken with an awful burning sensation on the my back of my calf. I’m like, “ How in the heck did that get there?” There were 3 scratch marks going down in a vertical position and they were thin but kind of deep but didn’t bleed, just red, swollen like a welt. They burned like fire, enough to wake me up from a dead sleep. I’m a very heavy sleeper. Exactly 7 days later, I find a series of 3 scratch marks on the same leg but this time in a horizontal pattern on the back of my left leg, directly behind my knee. These were a little deeper and burned like fire. The ones from last week are taking forever to heal. I’m a healthy individual and generally heal pretty quickly. About a month ago, I woke to find 3 scratches on the side of my neck. I do have a cat but he sleeps in the other room and I always keep the covers over my entire body. I just can’t explain these peculiar scratches. I don’t have long fingernails and I keep them well groomed so I can’t possibly see me scratching myself and in such an odd area of my body. I didnt give it much thought at first, I just assumed I scratched myself during the day at some point, but I assumed I would have felt it.

      This is even weirder. I was taking a walk the other day on a well groomed sidewalk. I started getting a burning sensation on the back of my right leg. I looked down to find 3 fresh red and swollen scratches. I’m like, “This is getting ridiculous!” Where are these coming from!

      Straightline scratch or cut during sleep are caused by WallGheckos. They climb bodies in course of sleep with the intention of looking for insects or mosquitoes for food but they do more than that, they make mark on peoples bodies with their nails. It has happened to me several times. I then decided to start using bed nets. Anytime I dont use bed net, i get a mark. It is our believe that this strange mark is caused by wall ghecko. It is also our believe that this animal is also used by satanic agents to monitor people in homes, so i dont spare them when I see them in my apartment.

      Hi everyone, I had the same scratches to my body but I don't have them now. I was really curious and didn't the reason behind it cause sometimes it were in places that is impossible for me to reach. Science has reasonable explanation for that as I have researched but I didn't give up. At last after researching and all I got my answers. I am sorry but yes it is connected to religion. I am not going to say my religion but I started seeking answers from different religions. All of them had the same answer (Judaism, Christianity, Islam). They are these creatures described in the holy book that has different names. Unfortunately we can't see them and they were described as very scary. They tend to hurt people in their sleep if they like you. Some people after getting scratches started recording their sleep and what they found was horrifying. They crawl backwards and some tend to elevate. However, there are some solutions to it that can help you like it did to me. Don't sleep naked and try to sleep on the right side. Don't sleep in your stomach it's bad for health and you get more scars. Don't go to sleep right after you ejaculated and if you do so try to take a shower to purify yourself. Don't watch porn before you to sleep cause the creature likes it when humans are naked. I know this might not seem true or credible and I might seem funny. If it does so, it's okay not to believe in it but if you have scratches what else can you do to prevent it. You can at least try this methods. Even if you are not religious you can give it a try. That's all hope I was helpfup. Remember not sleep naked even though it feels good. Sometimes things that feel good are bad for you. Hope all of you are fine

      I use to get scratches a lot when I woke up all the time a long time ago but they stopped for a couple years now all of a sudden today I found three scratches on my left leg and two on my right leg and I don’t know where they came from! I I’m really tall so even when I curl my legs up to my chest when I’m sleeping I can’t reach the area where my scratches are so it’s not self inflicted! Idk where it’s coming from but I don’t like it! Also everything goes missing in my house it’s crazy! It’s gotten so bad that it’s causing a family feud! My family are fighting because one person thinks the other stole something of there’s but then it mysteriously appears a couple minutes later! I have also seen a transparent lady walk out of my Grandma’s bathroom (me and my mom live with her) and that woman looked at me surprised almost like I wasn’t supposed to see her, then she ran into my grandma’s room! I don’t know what to do plz help! T-T

      In my old apartment, I woke up quite often with scratches and bruises on my body, and I know for sure they were not self-inflicted. Most often, the scratches would show up on my neck or legs, but one time I had a somewhat deep cut on my collar bone, right where it meets my shoulder. This one was especially strange because of how severe it was in comparison. I have so many bruises all the time, and even my friends ask why, but the vast majority of the time they have absolutely no explanation. I had a cut on the back of my leg once, and that one actually re-opened and left a scar. Explain it how you like but I absolutely believe it to be paranormal, demonic, metaphysical; however you choose to call it. Around that time I started to experience visions, and even smells that I had not experienced/ was not around. I could sense when (and can, still) something was wrong in a person’s live and what they were not telling me, seeing a past event in their lives. I do not do so well with predictions, but I can definitely see the past or the present of someone who is not with me.

      I have had some very strange things going on. My husband passed 2 years ago. Since then I've had some negative people try to take over . Which I got rid of. But my health has gotten very bad, my apartment I can't keep clean at all. No matter what. I'ts like something won't let me clean. My keys disappear. I have woken up with bruises fingerprints. My beloved cat she was very old died I found her at my bathroom door. What was strange is that her body position was weird. Her front part was going off to the right but the very back just above the tail we in the opposite direction. I live in a studio apartment and never heard anything. She didn't look stressed. My new kitten I kept a video going and heard him meowing and hissing at something you can hear bangs and you hear my kitten in distress. I can't seem to keep my thoughts organized I have smudged I know how to do all that I was raised Wiccan so I know when there is something else up. The list goes on. My energy is getting sucked dry and I can't make it stop. There alot of very petty people who mental health issues that live here. I feel like I am under a attack. I have a sudden swarm of insects and crazy stuff. There is a woman who lives below me who I guess you would call her a friend? She has been trying to copy me and she uses my loss to her advantage. Her bf passed so if anyone says that they feel bad for my loss she has to remind people the she lost her bf. I have caught her in so many lies and she Really tries to keep me down. It's very strange. I try to fight and be strong but I am getting worn down with the constant on slot for two years of negative interaction. I am not a suicidal personbut I have tried to hurt myself I am having unwelcomed thoughts. I can't sleep I keep having nightmares

      Two months ago I woke up and felt my legs were bruised down my outside thighs. Having Fybromialgia, I figured I was having a flare up and needed to get back on my inflammation free diet.

      I didn't think much about it until I changed clothes. On my left thigh was three hematoma bruises. One was a triangle shaped with a smaller triangle above it. Then a large circle hematoma close to my knee. They only hurt when I rub them. They have faded but the deep bruising is still there.

      I know u can stretch urself at night but my stratch didn't appear overnight. We were watching a movie, we stopped it so he could go smoke. I felt something on my forehead and just touched the area. I had a stratch on me. So I looked in the mirror its shaped like a cat stratch. (we don't have a cat) it looked like it just happened. He came back in and I asked him "why did you tell me I had a stratch on my forehead" his response was Becuz it wasn't there before.

      Ever since i was a little girl i use to have dreams about demons and hell. Mind you I had nothing to feel guilty about at that age. I had a bad case of sleep paralysis as a teen with a black shadow saying my name and coming to my bed side and floating above me and i couldn't move or breathe.Scared me enough to seek help with Jesus.Then as i got older i tried to ignore it but didn't help ,,and was having futuristic and apocalyptic dreams. I saw my step father die in a dream and he died 3 yrs later exactly how my dream played. I moved to a house that was renovated and within two months i started noticing stuff like light bulbs blowing..then exploding head syndrome sleeping. Soon after i started waking up with scratches..mostly in threes across my chest..my neck and arms. Even worse one formed while i was awake and it burned. I started taking pictures on my phone. I moved out and it's been better ..but I wont sleep in total darkness. They don't like the light so i sleep with a string of white lights over my bed. I am either haunted or being an intuitive water sign doesn't help but i feel the urge to get the message across..and trust me there are the unseen....I am 50 yrs old now..and very spiritual..Pray for protection..ask for Jesus and help from Arc Angels...God bless.

      My 15 yr old son has the same scratches on his back. First three we noticed that appeared was in the middle. Another three claw marks showed up on his lower back. Now he has three more claw marks between his shoulder blades. My son is strong and I know he has the gift of seeing people that have passed over or lost.

      But we are now getting worried because they are not going away. But more are appearing

      A few years ago I was staying at an older hotel in the Easton area of Columbus, Oh. We were there for a business event and booked the hotel for two nights. The first night there sometime around 2:00-3:00 am I felt a very noticeable burning sensation on the inside of my right leg just above the knee. The sensation was severe enough to wake me but I didn't get up to investigate the cause.

      In the morning when I was showering, I noticed on my leg, three distinct parallel scratches approximately 1.5 inches long, on my leg in the area I felt the burning sensation overnight. They looked like cat cat scratch and were approximately 1/4 inch apart. I didn't think to much of it at the time and kinda joked with my GF about my demon scratch.

      I have a friend that investigates the paranormal and I mentioned it to him a year or so after the fact. He explained it was a sign to destroy, the demonology aspect, etc. Since then I sometimes look for similar experience others have had.

      The scar remained on my leg for well over a year but has finally disappeared. At that time in my life I had become active in the church and performed live music in church monthly. Don't know why I was targeted but it absolutely happened. My GF freaks when I talk about it.

      I found this page by Googling "three scratches". Last night my youngest child was sick and vomiting. She ended up in bed with my wife, sleeping closest to our bathroom with my wife on my side of the bed. I was at our computer in the living room and had the TV on. I turned to watch some TV and saw something out of the corner of my eye. It looked like a grey "wisp" that moved in our dining area. A few minutes later it sounded like something was moved or pushed. I sat still and didn't see or hear anything else.

      I went to sleep in a spare bedroom and got up this morning with no issues. My wife took the day off to watch our youngest and I already had the day off and planned on running errands. After getting our two oldest kids on the bus I went out shopping. I stopped at our local Wawa gas station for coffee and a sandwich. My wife called and said that she went to get a shower and noticed three scratches on her body at the base of her neck / right side. She said they itched and burned. She has never had this happen before and our youngest had her fingernails trimmed two days prior for picture day so it's unlikely that our daughter did this. The scratches look like three claw marks moving downward and inward towards each other at the bottom.

      I had this happen to me on my right side on my rib cage a while ago but didn't think much of it. We're in Southern Maryland in a house built in 2003. We don't practice religion nor have we been involved with witchcraft. Both of us were raised Catholic. I have no clue what is going on. Our oldest (11 year old girl) says our house is spooky and that she sometimes sees a black shadow in my bedroom when she's watching TV in the living room. I've seen the same thing in this house and the same phenomenon happened in my childhood home in Pennsylvania.

      my daughter has told my Mother that she has seen a black cloud moving on the ceiling above the bed when we visited. I saw the same thing in the corner of my room when I was little. Our son (8 years old) has been scared at night in the past and said that he heard scratching noises in his room. I would like an idea as to what's going on an what, if any connection there is between my oldest daughter and myself.

      I decided to check my inner thigh and I saw at least five lines of bruises or scratched on there. They look very painful but they weren't painful at all. I don't know what happened and I'm confused

      I have been dealing with demons for 2 years now and this was the first time I was scratched like this. It was a surprise and scared me at first but I have been active in my church and am close to God, especially for a year now, so I feel protected by Him. I hope this will stop soon and plan to stay as close to the Lord as I can because that is all I can do to protect myself. These demons are really tricky and have been tricking me for a while. I have a huge history with this I could go on and on, but I do know they are real. Good luck and stay close to God. Read the scriptures and pray and ask for His guidance and protection.

      Parasitism, which is wholly demonic, cannot be ruled out regarding this phenomenon.

      I’ve Benin getting scratches but they only come as one scratch not in three and are usually spread across my body. A few of my friends have also been scratched but with them it’s been two parallel marks not three and when ever they get scratched its only around me. Also from some strange reason I don’t dream. I have dreamless nights and naps, but when I do dream they start off pleasant but then turn south quickly.

      This was happening to me for a few months now and I dont know whats happening. I definitely know that I don't scratch myself during the night and I dont have pets. I dont do drugs nor smoke. Comments from this website suggest praying to Jesus and it worked but I can't do that cause I'm Buddhist. Help me someone plz. I just got a recent scar mark but this one was different from the previous mark. It seemed like a bunch of holes arranged into a square like shape and it was red. It wasnt painful like the previous ones and it was a lot more obvious. It was under my neck but not on it and it was about 4cm across and down. After noticing it I started to feel sensitive on that part. Help me someone plz Im too young to die.
